  • The TLM 170 R* was the first microphone to use the successful fet 100 technology. Along with a balanced, transformerless output stage it features extremely low self-noise and an impressive dynamic range. Five directional characteristics are selectable by means of a rotary switch. In the sixth position, marked R, the directional patterns can be controlled remotely with the N 248 power supply. There is no special cable necessary for this purpose.


    • Local and remote controlled large diaphragm microphone
    • Pressure-gradient transducer with double membrane capsule
    • Five directional characteristics: omni, wide angle cardioid, cardioid, hypercardioid, figure-8
    • Patented circuitry for remote and local switching of directional characteristics
    • Switchable low frequency roll-off and 10 dB preattenuation
    • Tiltable, elastically suspended bracket mount

    The TLM 170 R condenser microphone is a large diaphragm microphone with multiple polar patterns. Its sound has a very transparent characteristic, in contrast to some of our other microphones that have a distinct personality. Therefore, this microphone is used for many diverse applications in professional recording studios, in broadcasting, film and television, and for semiprofessional productions. The polar patterns can be selected either at the microphone itself, or controlled remotely through the special N 248 power supply.
